Course Description Prerequisites: Enrollment limited to 40 students. This course presents a survey of American fiction, literary and cultural criticism since 1945, with special attention paid to interrogating the concept of "Americanness" as both a subject for fiction and as a category around which "canon" formation takes place. Topics and questions we will consider include: Is there a "great" contemporary American novel? What does/would it look like and who decides? Are there recognizable "American" characters, genres, aesthetics, subjects? Authors may include Bellow, Ellison, Nabokov, Kerouac, Didion, Pynchon, and Morrison.
